To promote the all-day availability of their Egg & Cheese sandwich, Subway teamed up with creative agency McKinney and Hornet directors Dan & Jason to produce the ultimate Broadway-style, gastronomic musical. (A gastrono-musical!) The film, Eggsical, is a playful 2D animation featuring a full cast of anthropomorphized sandwich ingredients who sing and dance and celebrate our hero, the humble egg, as he makes his grand appearance on the lunch menu stage. With high-flying choruses, choreographed dance numbers, and a tragicomedy finale, this is Dan & Jason at their humorous best.
